A philosophical principle
I have contemplated for many, many years.
It's basis is the common complexity
of everyday decision making
on a contrast with major, life-changing decisions.
Most major decisions in a person's life are either a fundamentally good thing to do, whether in the interest of the decision maker
or, less often, someone else
; or it is the societally acceptable
conclusion of what the "right" thing to do would be, being subject to widespread moral opinion
, intuition, or conjecture.
